Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) affects approximately 8 percent of the general population and over 40 percent of veterans. PTSD sufferers often experience irritability, sleeplessness, trouble concentrating and an inability to relax; affecting one’s job, family and their ability to connect with community.

 

Modeled after the Military Stress Relief Project, MSRP, developed by Acupuncturist Without Borders, the acupuncturist in the community clinic model places 5 small needles in each ear to help calm the nervous system. 

 

This community acupuncture clinic model got its start when dozens of acupuncturist treated hundreds of residents and first responder’s in post-Katrina New Orleans in 2005. Replicated around the world, including Nepal and Haiti, the first MSRP clinic was piloted in Albuquerque, NM. Clinics are now operational in Washington D.C., Chicago, San Diego and Baltimore.

 

Paul Rojas, a Veteran and participant in Albuquerque stated,” I believe that because of the treatments I received I have become calmer and my anxiety level has drastically come down. I’m able to sleep more restfully and longer without nightmares and flashbacks. Acupuncture is helping me get my life back.”   (Quote provided by Acupuncturist Without Borders)

  • Done is a small group setting limited to 8 people per session
